Case Study – City of London Corporation

Introduction

The City of London Corporation proposed a major regeneration project of the Aldgate area in London. The Aldgate Highway Changes and Public Realm Improvements project involves the introduction of two-way working on the Aldgate gyratory system and the creation of a new public square. The aim of the project is to enhance the street environment, adding greenery, reducing traffic congestion and making it easier and safer to walk and cycle through the area.

Objective

To seek public opinion on the project by way of a public consultation. The objective was to get as much public feedback as possible so it was decided to promote the consultation through various forms of media to gain maximum exposure to the general public. This involved producing invites, brochures, consultation leaflets with feedback forms, pull up banners, exhibition pop up stands and even giant pods that were erected outside of Aldgate station.

Solution

To appoint a single supplier to produce all items and entrust that supplier to co-ordinate the proofing process throughout the project and ensure that everything matched up across all of the different forms of media and different substrates.

Outcome

SPM were appointed as the preferred supplier and a senior manager was appointed to handle the project from start to finish. Proofs were supplied to the client for all items prior to printing and once approved everything was printed in sequence ensuring that the colour was consistent across all of the different items (this included paper, board and vinyl).

Summary

The jobs were proofed, printed, finished and installed within the timeframe set by the client. The client was very happy with the final products and there is reference to this on the Testimonials pages of this site.
